Hey guys,


Have a small lake near me which holds an ok stock of carp. Unfortunately also home to some terrapins, noticed my bait was getting had. Even using pop up boilies i found i was reeling back in with a munched up bolie!


What i have found out is its actually clawing at the bait and picking it apart rather than directly eating it.

Anyone had any similar issues. Ive found that chickpeas are not getting as much attention from them but i have had a few times i have reeled in and the chickpea was gone.


Read tiger nuts also could also keep them at bay so to speak? 


Moving swims is an option. They seem to reside on one side of the lake on an island.


Anyone found a way to keep these things away from your hookbaits, plastic corn i guess could be an option aswell.


Thanks for any replies
